Lawmakers to Meet with Kansas Oil Producers

KSAL StaffAugust 18, 2014

The Kansas congressional delegation will be taking the stage at the annual convention of the Kansas Independent Oil and Gas Association.

Panelists at Monday’s event include Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts for a discussion of political and regulatory challenges to the nation’s energy future. Roberts will be joined on the panel by the state’s four U.S. House members – Tim Huelskamp, Lynn Jenkins, Mike Pompeo and Kevin Yoder.

Also on the agenda for the Wichita convention is a discussion of the lesser prairie chicken and its listing by the federal government as a threatened species. Oil and gas producers have said the listing interferes with their business by putting restrictions on land use.
